• Use the condensate as distilled water,
e.g. for steam ironing. If it is necessary
clean the condensate before (e.g. with

• Clean the heat exchanger filters when
the applicable indicator comes into
the view on the control panel.
• Spin good the laundry before drying.
8.2 Water hardness and
conductivity
Water hardness can be different for different locations. Water hardness has an
effect on the water conductivity and the
